Washi Tape Ornaments




I love Washi Tape!!  I love to make projects with Washi Tape.  It is inexpensive and really packs a punch!  this season I decided to make a Washi tape Ornaments.

What you need:
Washi Tape (Michaels has great new festive tapes this season.  Just ab out any Christmas color you can think of, even gold and silver)
Foam core ( I get mine at the dollar store)
Exact-o Knife
Modge Podge
Frame
Ribbon
Opt: Vinyl saying

I first took an old frame I had and covered the glass with white paper. Missed this picture but you can just imagine it.

Next I found some ornament shapes on the Internet and printed them.  I flipped them wrong side up and covered the paper with washi tape.  Then cut them out.

Take some modge podge and glue the ornaments to a piece of foam core.  I got mine at the dollar store. Let the glue dry. Putting them on the foam core makes the jump off the page.  Not so flat.

Once the glue is dry use an Exact-o knife and cut around the edge of the ornaments. To give my ornaments a little sparkle and texture I used glitter glue pens to dot the polka dots, and lines on the washi tape. It is hard to see in the pictures but in person they look great.

Once your ornaments are cut out, place them on your frame.  I played a little with the placement until I liked it.


Add some ribbons for strings and bows with glue dots.


Once I got this far I thought I would be happy but I decided to add the Phrase Merry & Bright to my frame.  I think it finished it off perfect!!! I just love how it turned out.
